Matthew's Sports Room

Brady's birthday room was such a big hit that our oldest has now requested a new room for this birthday late next month.  We've never done anything more than paint and plop a bed in there so it is long overdue.

Matthew is hands down the most energetic human being I've ever met.  The only thing that really settles him down is sports.  Watching sports, watching news coverage about sports, talking about sports, playing get the picture.  The direction of his room was obvious.

Like the prior two boys' rooms I don't like rooms to be too juvenile or too themey so I focused on incorporating the sports in non-permanent ways (accessories, removable decals) and invested more in furniture pieces that can grow with him.

Here's where I'm currently headed:

My favorite part about this project is that it involves very little construction.  We added in the recessed lighting, crown molding and baseboard heater a month or so ago so now it is just paint and accessories!
